It isn’t a Persona 5 sequel, either.
It’s an action spin-off called Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.
Of all the things I expected, that never occurred to me. Persona 5 Scramble is a Musou-style (think Dynasty Warriors) action RPG being developed by Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force studio, for both the PS4 and the Switch.
Unlike Persona 5 Royal, neither localization news nor a Japanese release date has been announced for this yet. Since the dancing spin-offs came to the west and Persona Q2 will follow, it seems likely Persona 5 Scramble will as well.
All we have so far is a short teaser trailer introducing the game.
It’s supposed to tell a new story, so we’ll see how this fits in with Persona 5. Maybe it’s sort of a sequel after all, even if it’s not quite what we had in mind.
